Tight hugz my darling! You are patient tho, I would have taken an otc med for YI if that is what I expected was wrong. Its the same ole story eh? so many conditions have the same symtoms and specialist just can't realize that many of us know our own body! and know when its NOT the other condition, its independent! Hope you are feeling better asap. Emailing you some ice cream babes, dry up those eyes, if tears get in the ice cream it will melt faster than you can eat it !!!
I take Depokote for mood balance due to my mixed bipolar. Dont let this new 'term' freak you out. You stated you were dx'ed w major depression which is part of bipolar. so maybe in your case it isnt an 'add-on' but something you have been experiencing all along and your just now hearing a more deffinitive term?? You should discuss with your dr the differnances in certain conditions and let her tell you spefically what your diagnosis is. Regardless, it sounds like she is on top of things and that is what is most important for your over all health. Best wishes Dyanne View Thread
Salutations to the newbies and to the old folks Weather: SUN woohoo extremely windy and brisk tho Sleep: some Mood: hum I have had such a horrible case of the "I don't cares". For example, just simple calls for appts, I just made 2 which should have been made a couple of weeks ago, but I just dont care. As most of you know the chronic migrianes and other pains I have just dont jive with my brain that wants to go go go, so I guess the 'I dont cares' is depression. I want to go sit in the sun, but that wind, shew, 2 mins and I'm in eye-head-hell. I will say this tho, getting back in here to see your smiling faces WILL help. Specials muahs to you cookie poo and small muahs to everyone else heheView Thread
like JS, I like the celestial teas as well, my fav is the sleepy time hehe. My other hot tea is Red Rose, of course and that is also what I use to do my fresh sun-brewed-tea for ice. I was raised surrounded by swt tea drinkers, but I like 1 sweet & low w ice. Just like my java, I like my hot tea straight upView Thread

Cookie....that is the #1 problem, which is what I have said for years. Drs are shocked when they get a patient who really knows their body and keeps up with their medical hx. I know so many ppl who go to dr and say ' uh ok, fine, thx' and dont even know what the dr said lol. But then peeps like us come along and it throws them a curve ball. View Thread
Melly...here is a java for you...cause we are in the same boat! I have the migraines, same deal w imitrex, ortho and a brace, and the same with otc meds and stomach! Let me preface the next by saying I have a WONDERFUL PCP...but...once the nerves and bones came in to play he just dismisses it. The neuro dx'ed the fibromyalgia and my pcp's answer is 'nothing much to do for it and your stomach doesnt need the meds' so now its a non issue with him. I was telling him how badly my wrist, hips and ankle and feet were hurting yet I am unable to work hence not from labour, ya know. Well, it was so bad i went to my local walk in, took x-rays, ordered bone scan...and tah dah, guess what, im not a hypochondriac! shoulders and knees =osteopenic; right ankle and foot, hips and wrist arthritic osteoporosis. The findings had a note attached: verify patient's age based on extreme results!View Thread
